DWI Defenses

At the law office of Kenneth N. Lipstein, we will carefully review your case to determine possible defenses that can reduce or eliminate DWI penalties. We question whether the police stop was justified. We review police documentation to challenge any questionable evidence they bring forward. We determine whether roadside sobriety tests were properly administered and question their validity.

In addition, we understand how to challenge the Alcotest, the breath testing instrument used in New Jersey.

The Alcotest was recently ruled by the State Supreme Court to be reliable but, due to its technical nature, requires a detailed understanding to be administered properly.

Attorney Kenneth N. Lipstein has attended a number of seminars on the Alcotest, including the Operator Training Course conducted by the Alcotest’s manufacturer, Draeger Safety Diagnostics, Inc. He has received training certification on the Alcotest’s analytical system, components and peripherals, as well as how to operate the instrument and perform a New Jersey specific breath test sequence. Using this experience and detailed understanding, we have successfully challenged Alcotest results.
